The sunny days are here and you have already set the dates for your vacation this summer, but you haven’t taken the time to find your next destination, or book your flight or accommodation? Our selection of the 5 best free apps to book your holidays will certainly help you!
We love to take vacations and travel. But we don’t like to spend hours in front of magazines and sites that boast of the sun at the end of the world and the idleness of the countryside, without offering us reliable and relevant reservation services. To help you research, organize and book your vacation, test these free mobile apps that will not only help you find your ideal stay, but also help you book your tickets so you can leave with peace of mind!
The reference for search and reservation sites is, of course, Booking.com. Very complete and offering thousands of offers around the world, users will be able to take advantage of a very complete filter system for flights, accommodation, stays or car rentals. They will also be able to take advantage of the ratings and comments of other users to prepare a stress-free holiday. They can then book their ticket or their stay, directly from the free mobile application for Android and iOS, or from the online service.
Editorial review: Although the interface is not as modern as some competitors, Booking.com is certainly the platform that offers the most offers and ads. In addition, no booking fees are charged and cancellation is generally free (under certain conditions).
Go Travel is also a search engine and a booking service for your flights, accommodation, stays and car rental. Available in free mobile applications and online service, it allows you to take advantage of attractive rates and compare the best offers. The search engine is complete and the reservation service allows you to have your reservation information directly from your smartphone. Go Voyages sets up a Premium service called Go Prime, which allows you to benefit from additional reductions against an annual subscription without commitment.
Editorial review: In addition to the travel offers and the simple and effective search engine, Go Voyages also offers good plans and travel ideas with videos on certain stays to make you want to take off! With Go Voyages, it is also possible to order complete tourist circuits, activities and even cruises.
Formerly OUI.sncf, SNCF Connect is the new modern and intuitive application, which will eventually replace all SNCF applications. Available on Android, iOS and as an online service, SNCF Connect allows you to find and book your train tickets, as well as recharge your Navigo pass. The search engine is simple and intuitive, and it is possible, by creating a free account, to save your preferences (number of travelers, pet, etc.) to avoid entering them each time. Various practical options simplify your journeys, including the display of a notification when your lane number is available.
Editor’s opinion: Although the application only offers train tickets, it remains particularly interesting and intuitive. The notification system of delays and track numbers is very practical and thus avoids crowd movements in front of the display boards in the stations.
AirBnB is the accommodation booking platform that has achieved immense success in recent years. Individuals and professionals can offer apartments, studios, private rooms or even villas to individuals looking for cheaper and/or individual accommodation. The welcome is also more personalized than in hotels and you have the impression of being “at home” or with friends.
Editorial review: On a purely functional level, the mobile applications and the online service are very practical with an interactive map that allows you to geolocate available accommodation and then view the details and prices for each, with the services and equipment provided. It is possible to ask questions to the advertiser and leave a comment.
Are you looking for an effective and simple price comparison tool for finding flights and accommodation, renting a motorhome or organizing your stay at the best price? Kayak is certainly the most complete and fastest price comparator. Accessible as a free application and as an online service, Kayak lets you compare thousands of stays, flights, rentals and even activities on hundreds of booking sites for a stress-free holiday. And if you lack inspiration, go to the Explore section to discover destinations that make you want to pack your bags!
Editorial review: With a clear and intuitive interface, the mobile applications, as well as Kayak’s online service, are really pleasant to use. On the other hand, you cannot book from the Kayak site, you will be automatically redirected to the site offering the reservation of the hotel, the flight, etc.
